jwave HIGH Events

  Come together with other Jewish teens and families at fun and meaningful social events.

 

jwave HIGH Experiences

  Come together with other families in fun and meaningful ways within a socially Jewish context.


How Experiences Work

 jwave HIGH Experiences are carefully designed to maximise fun and a feeling of community.

Teens are grouped by year, providing them with opportunities to create, develop and foster friendships while deepening their engagement with Jewish life and community.

Participating in Experiences is a new way for families outside of the Jewish schools to connect with one another and BJE Madrichim (leaders) in the years leading up to and after BJE’s once-in-a-lifetime five-week Israel program.

Experiences are co-created with dedicated jwave parent volunteers and are essential to building our community.

We thank The JCA Millie Phillips Jewish Education Fund for their generous support of our 2021 Experiences.
